"Coming to Him as a living stone, re|ected indeed by 
men, but chosen by God and precious, you also, as living 
stones, ore being built up a spiritual house, a holy priest- 
hood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God 
through Jesus Christ. Therefore it is also contained in the 
Scripture, "Behold, I lay in Zion A chief cornerstone, elect, 
precious, And he who believes on Him will by no means 
be put to shame.' 

Therefore, to you who believe, He is precious; but to 
those who are disobedient, 'The stone which the builders 
rejected Has become the chief cornerstone,' and 'A 
stone of stumbling And a rock of defense." They stumble, 
being disobedient to the word, to which they also were 

But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a 
holy nation, His own special people, that you may 
proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of 
darkness into His marvelous light; who once were not a 
people but are now the people of God, who had not 
obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy"

Building Community 

One of the unique characteristics of Covenant College 
is its diverse array of clubs and activities-all initiated, 
funded, and run by the students themselves. 

It is the intent of this section of the yearbook to record 
a cross-section of the Covenant College community as 
it participates in everything from martial arts to white- 
water rafting and from computer networking to drama 
productions. And it is the student body's participation in 
these activities that keeps the Covenant community

This fall, freshmen orientation took on a dif- 
ferent twist from previous years. Each morn- 
ing, freshmen woke up to attend a lecture based 
around the book. Fabric ofFaithjulness, which 
helped the students connect what they believe 
with the way they live. The topics discussed 
during the week were put into practice on 
Monday when students attended "The Ama- 
teur Project." Classmates went into Chatta- 
nooga to help different organizations such as 
the Shepherd's Arms, which provides refuge 
for battered women. Along with all of this. 
students also attended meetings that helped 
them learn more about the school and the dif- 
ferent activities and ministries. One thing that 
did remain constant about orientation, though, 
was everyone's favorite get-to-know-you 
games that provided fun and some embarrass-

the Tning 

From the very first rehearsal until 
the cast party that lasted until six in the 
morning, the cast and crew of "You Can't 
Take It With You" knew how to have fun 
together. For three nights, the audience 
was able to share in the fun. The cast of 
nineteen (plus two kittens and a boa con- 
strictor), under the direction of Nikki Ellis, 
brought a joie de vivre to their char- 
acters, which shined through during the per- 

Even though she was a first-time 
director. Ellis brought a wealth of knowl- 
edge to the proceedings and kept the ener- 
getic cast focused. The dedicated crew 
pitched in with lights, make-up. and props 
to support the actors' efforts and bring a 
polished show to the stage. 

Characteristic of the unity 
of the cast, Aaron Mesh, 
Jeremy Foreman, Lucas 
Fitts, and Jonathan Davis 
cuddle on Scott Raymond 's 
couch, which he graciously 
allowed to be used in the 
play. "You Can't Take It

of the cast to make new 
friends and spend time with 
old ones.

Ask any Covenant student, and he is sure 
to tell you that Kilter is one of the most 
anticipated CAB events of the year. This 
year was no exception. Perhaps the most 
distinguishing factor about Kilter is that this 
is the time when the girls get to ask the 
guys. The ladies certainly performed well 
at this task as students packed into the great 
hall for a night of dancing, dancing, a little 
food, and more dancing. Kilter gives ev- 
eryone an opportunity to take part in one 
of their favorite activities, while still within 
the Covenant student contract. The theme. 
Dynamic Duos, certainly lent itself well to 
a wide variety of costumes. Some notable 
favorites included Curious George and the 
Man in the Yellow hat. Trinity and Neo 
from the hit movie The Matrix, and an 
abundance of Spartan cheerleaders. 

Sarah Ellison and Evan Williams go for an ethnic look 
The diversity of Kilter produced a wide range of duos p

Warren Trice and Shanna Barrett take advantage of the opportunity for 
dancing within contract. Everyone enjoys the chance to express himself at 
school sponsored events like Kilter tha! allow dancing. Warren and Shanna

Homecoming was kicked off on a beauti- 
ful Friday afternoon full of sunshine and 
fresh air; however, it didn't stay that way 
for long, as Saturday morning ushered in 
rain and fog. The festivities began with a 
musical feast during rhe Music department 
concert featuring Handel's Water Music 
performed by the Symphonette. Later in 
the evening, the Great Hall was filled with 
sounds of a more modern style, with a spe- 
cial concert by James Ward. One of the 
everyone's favorite events in the homecom- 
ing fun is Burning at the Stage. While usu- 
ally held at Shadowland's field. Burning 
was moved into the Great Hall as the lit- 
eral fire was extinguished by rain, but the 
spirit of homecoming would not be put out 
so easily as it continued to burn in the hearts 
of all those in attendance. 

Grant Withington, 
Micah Carver, and 
Chris Smith perform 
some of their favorite 
songs for the audience 
at Burning at the Stage. 
The only thing that re- 
ally was missing was 
the fire. Unfortunately, 
due to rain and fog, the 
event had to be moved 
into the Great Hall, hut 
it certainly didn 't 
dampen any spirits 
with it. Great music still 
resounded and was met

One of the great highlights of the weekend was the special concert on 
Friday evening by James Ward. "The concert was quite enjoyable. He 
provided a great message with great music and the audience was really 
enthusiastic. " said Pam Lucas. Ward was certainly a performer that many 
from Covenant would like to see come back again.

the Season 

Christmas is always a magical time, and the 
excitement of the Madrigal dinners only adds 
to the season. The magnificent Elizabethan 
era dinner is quite an attraction for many, as 
it draws students, faculty, and alumni as well 
as many patrons of the college from near and 
far. Perhaps the defining element of the event 
is the atmosphere. The lobby and Great Hall 
of Carter get quite a make-over for the three 
special nights to recreate the setting. Aside 
from the delicious menu containing everything 
form hot steaming wassail to flaming plum 
pudding, the annual event also provides an 
opportunity to showcase some of Covenant's 
finest talent. The highlight of the evening may 
certainly be the Madrigal singers led by Dr. 
Hamm along with music from the brass choir 
and an ensemble from the symphonette, both 
led by Dr. Steele. 

The kitchen workers 
put in a long night of 
hard work and are still 
all smiles. The Madri- 
gal dinner consists of 
an extravagant eight 
course meal, and these 
are the friendly folks 
behind the scenes that 
make it all happen. 
Students enjoy work- 
ing in the kitchen dur- 
ing the dinners as it 
gives them a chance to 
earn a little extra 
money just in time for 
Christmas shopping.

Ken iMngley and Dan 
Hudson started the day 
bright and early with a 
song in their hearts. 

Residents of nearby 
Jungle, their sister hall, 
came over to make 
breakfast for fellow 
Founder's hall 

Rivendell, as well as to 
share in the time of 
prayer and praise. 


A visitor to Covenant may see Day of Prayer 
as a simple vacation from studying, while to 
every student it is much more than that. 
Throughout the semester students are con- 
tinually enriched in their learning and aca- 
demics, and Day of Prayer comes as a time 
to enrich one's prayer life by devoting the 
entire day to the Lord through prayer. A va- 
riety of opportunities is offered to escape the 
atmosphere of schoolwork, such as a trip to 
Cloudland Canyon and the many hall retreats 
that take place on the Day of Prayer. One 
activity that is certainly looked forward to by 
students is the Psi Chi sunrise prayer at Rock 
City, followed by breakfast. "It was such a 
beautiful sunrise; the skies were giving glory 
to God with us that morning," said Kelly 
Clarkson. The day was brought to an end by 
prayer and praise at Oasis. 

Jessica Hudson and Stephanie Sproul enjoyed part of their Day of Prayer out on the 
chapel lawn, with a little bit of afternoon reading. It was a beautiful day, and there 
were quite a few students who took the opportunity to spend the time outside.

Early to rise Jungle girls make it to the 6:30 prayer time at Rock City,

students like to take 
the opportunity to 
spend some time out 
in nature and ad- 
mire the beautiful 
wooded land that 
surrounds the Cov- 
enant campus. 

Day of prayer offers many students a time of 
solitude and a chance to devote the day to spend- 
ing time with God. It also comes as a break from 

the hectic schedule of studying and school work, 
giving students time to focus on prayer.

A beautiful sunset on a warm April 
evening was the start of an enchanting night at

is certainly an event that every student looks

eryone to kick back and have a great time. 

The dinner portion of the evening in- 
cluded chicken in a white wine sauce and 
strawberry tarts for dessert. Spring Banquet 
is also a quite anticipated event because it is 
another opportunity for Covenant students to 
get out on the dance floor. After dinner many 
girls shed their dress shoes and danced bare 
foot for the sake of sheer comfort ! This year's

The Baker Tree Festival began bright

which all participants received a free Baker

The festivities continued in the after-

to share their musical talents. Many different 
bands performed throughout the evening, and 
students enjoyed listening to the music and 
taking a break from studying for finals. 

Dinner was served on the chapel 
lawn, and while everyone was eating, prizes 
were awarded for the winners of the race 
and door prizes were drawn out of the people 
who bought t-shirts. First prize for the race 
was a pair of running shoes, donated by one 
of the companies who sponsored the festi- 
val, and other prizes included t-shirts donated 
by other supporters.

The festival was originally scheduled for April 15, but because of rain, it was pushed 
back to April 29, the weekend before finals. As a result, many students brought their

able to type an important term paper while enjoying the music. 

Michael Dixon and Josh Hinman get the crowd going with their fun songs 
and crazy humor. The Baker Tree Festival is a great time for local Covenant 
bands to get together and showcase the talents that can be found right here 
in our community.

The Spring semester always seems to 
have a great lack of breaks from classes. Every 
student dreads that eight- week stretch of nothing 
but straight studies. However, all of that hard 
work is rewarded when spring break rolls around. 
It is the great release of all of the pent up stress 
and tension and at the same time a chance for 
some to get ahead on big papers and important 

Some stay close by while others travel 
far away to places with skiing; be it snow or water, 
all enjoy the time of rest. Many students take the 
opportunity to go on Break on Impact or chorale 
tour. These trips give students the opportunity to 
do something a little less standard for their break 
and are also a great time to get to know other 
students better. However one may choose to 
spend the time, one thing is for certain, it is al- 
ways longed for by all and seems to end too soon.

This is the story of an Irish Catholic 
family of five sisters and one brother as told 
through the eyes of their young nephew, 
Michael. The action takes place over two days 
of the harvest festival at Lughnasa. Michael is 
the illegitimate son of one of the sisters, Chrissi, 
and it is his retelling of his memories of growing 
up in this family that make up the story. At the 
time of the action Michael is only seven and is 
retelling the story when he is twenty-five. He 
looks back on how the return of two main male 
figures in his life truly shaped things, his father 
Gerry and his uncle, Father Jack. The title of 
the play comes from the addition of the family's 
very first radio and all of the times they enjoy 
dancing to the music it plays. The director for 
this year's spring play was Meg Hayes, who 
also played the part of one of the sisters, and 
assistant director was Grace White.

it's Friday? 

After a long hard week of classes, 
there's nothing a student looks forward to 
more than the weekend. Covenant is certainly 
no exception, and its proximity to so many 
great places makes it ideal. Chattanooga pro- 
vides a wealth of great places to eat and things 
to do including the new addition of Coolidge 
Park down on the river as well as shopping at 
Hamilton Place or movies at the Bijou theatre. 

There is also an abundance of oppor-

thusiast. Many students enjoy the sporting 
events in nearby Atlanta while the outdoors 
type appreciate the great parks such as 
Cloudland Canyon State Park which provide

The Class of 2000 Senior Banquet

One of the highlights of the evening 
was the faculty address by Dr. Lou Voskuil, 
Professor of History. Also enjoyable was the 
music presentation by some Covenant Col-

Graduation from college, especially from 
Covenant, always brings mixed emotions. First, 
it is an end of four great years of classes, living in 
the dorms, eating ARA, and being constantly 
challenged to make Christ preeminent in all things. 
But it is also a beginning of a new life, including 
careers, marriage, graduate studies, and chances 
to apply all that has been learned. 

This year's speaker, Reverend Joe 
Novenson from Lookout Mountain Presbyte- 
rian Church, challenged the students, as well as 
family and friends, to remember God's covenant. 
He, as well as student speakers Janna Levi and 
Justin Corder, reminded everyone that life is not 
about what we can do or can be. Life is ulti- 
mately about what God has already done for us 
and in us. It is about living Covenant College's 
motto and truly acknowledging Christ's pre- 
eminence in all things.

Building Character 

"But Jesus called them to Himself and said, 'You 
know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over 
them, and those who are great exercise over 
them. Yet it shall not be so among you; but who- 
ever desires to become great among you, let him 
be your servant. And whoever desires to be first 
among you, let him be your slave — just as the Son 
of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, 
and to give His life a ransom for many.'" 

Matthew 20:25-28 

As Covenant students train to be leaders both for the 
present and for the future, it is important that they 
remember Christ's instructions regarding true leadership. 
It is through many of the activities represented in this 
section that students are not only building wisdom and 
community, but are also building character. 



As 1 1 :00 rolls around, students pour into 
the Chapel for daily "spiritual feeding." Chapel 
is the place for students to come and learn, praise, 
worship, and pray. Many speakers are asked to 
come and speak to the school about different top- 
ics; it could be anything from testimonies of their 
personal lives to familiar topics like forgiveness, 
the grace of God, and sin. 

Every Wednesday, small group Bible stud- 
ies meet. Some groups are with their halls, some 
with professors or administration, and some are 
grouped according to their intended majors. 

On Fridays, Chapel is taken over by stu- 
dents for praise. Some days are set aside for 
prayer. The floor is open to students who feel 
like praying for their fellow students. 

Chapel is a daily reminder of our relation- 
ships with Christ and what we need to do to make 
them stronger. 

For Day of Prayer, 
halls and small 
groups got together to 
pray with and for one 
another. 3rd Central 
went to a camp in Ala- 
bama where they spent 
the day outside pray- 
ing. "It was a great 
time for fellowship 
and a way for the girls 
to grow closer to- 
gether, " said Resident 
Advisor Jana Werson.

Every March, students begin to grow anx-

head. It can only mean one thing, Spring Break. 
However, a number of Covenant students use this 
time as an opportunity to serve the Lord. These

"Behold, how good and how pleasant it is 
For brethren to dwell together in unity! 
It is like the precious oil upon the head, 
Running down on the beard, 
The beard of Aaron, 

Running down on the edge of his garments. 
It is like the dew of Hermon, 
Descending upon the mountains of Zion; 
For there the LORD commanded the blessing- 
Life forevermore "

The year was A.D. 2000, and a man named 
Lao ruled the kingdom of Blackwatch and al 
was peaceful. Lao came to power by mooch- 
ing off larger surrounding lands, and with the 
aid of his trusty wise men The Ship of Win 
and Mike the thinker guy, Lao ruled peace- 
fully. Blackwatch was peaceful until the ar- 
rival of two new tribes of Covenantarians. The 
tribes of the Amazons and the Gallerarians al- 
lied and attacked from the North. King Lao 
gathered his forces and the men of 
Blackwatch prepared for battle. There was 
the big yet stealthy James the Comical and 
his trusty sidekick JJA riding his trusty mule. 
The fashionable Larson brothers dressed in 
their most expensive fleeces and put on their 
finest cologne for the battle. The men at arms, 
Ben the chaste and Billy the beautiful, strode 
their steeds to battle. Chris the powerful 
brought his knowledge of battles, and Jamin 
the cleric brought the holy word to protect the 
heroes. T-dog harnessed the power of the wild 
dog while his partner Nick rested in his bed 
not wanting to overexert himself. Andy the 
Italian Stallion, Aaron the Armadillo, Ian the 
Quintarian. Agent Orange the Gemplarian, 
Jesse the giant Strowman, Cheese the min- 
strel, and Macus of Texas each brought their 
own special techniques. The two foreign Is- 
raelites Earl of Joe and Erik the Swan trav- 
eled half a world to aid their brothers. Mr. 
Casanova came from Liberia, Jay the foreign 
mercenary from Rivendell, and Jason the ninja 
came prepared for battle. Wang the Wholeton, 
The prince of Blackwatch, donned his golden 
armor and galloped with his brothers to meet 
the mighty feminine warriors on the Yard of

The hall skit about the United Bachelors of 
America had the whole room laughing. The best 
part of the whole thing was eating Krispy Kreme 
doughnuts on stage. 

Susan Crenshaw and Deirdre Nawrocki laugh as 
they discuss their revenge against Rivendell. The 

boys found a surprise present under the tree- con- 
traband items from their hall 

It seems the Jungle has become a target hall for 
expanding mischievious horizons. Paper towel, 
toilet paper, and soap dispensers and even toilet 
seats have all been found missing on occasion. 
Our kitchen was also once stripped clean (not to 
mention when our water fountain was knocked 
off the wall.) At least we found all of our stuff; it 
was nicely decorating the Founders front porch 
area. The smelliest prank award goes to the dead 
fish we've found in random places along the hall... 
and the smelly runner up is a tie between the 
rotten milk poured outside one of the rooms and 
the stink bombs that have found their way into 
our ceiling panels. The most disgusting prank 
happened when someone put a dead possum in 
our hall stocking and hung it on the door. Nice 
Christmas present we were all very grateful. And 
last, but not the least in any way, was when our 
hall was totally ransacked. By that, I mean our 
hall was a DISASTER! We had a hall party off 
the mountain and returned to basically empty 
rooms and a very full hall. Most of our things- 
mattresses included-were stuffed in our quiet 
commons. The alarm clocks were in one neat 
pile, curling irons in another, shoes in yet an- 
other. You get the picture, right? Try sorting 
through hundreds of pairs of shoes; we dare you. 
Payback? Of course not-we're nice girls. Really!

1 st Belz 

As new students to Covenant, I do 
not think that any of us would have cho- 
sen 1st Belz as the place to live. The carpet 
is stained, despite laying down new carpet 
this summer, there is no space, and there 
are carpeted walls. At the beginning of the 
semester, everything was cleaned, but that 
only lasted a few days. But, it is our home. 
In terms of the comforts of home, Belz is 
one of the last places one would choose to 
live, yet, we are here. We realize the hall is 
more than walls and floors and space. It 
goes beyond the hall events. It is the indi- 
vidual people and characteristics that make 
the hall. We cherish the flooded urinals and 
wrestling matches. 

Most of our meaningful friendships 
come from 1st Belz. The theme of the hall 
has always been "Unity in Diversity," and 
it is the same this year. We have computer 
nerds, military men, guitarists, martial arts 
students and "Ultimate" players. Yet, we 
live in fellowship in Christ. 

Well, Dr. Krabbendam, are you going to be tell- 
ing a story to your companions, the man in black, 
Robin Hood and—who is that other guy? 

Do you want to know what is in the box? Too 

bad, they didn 't tell us either.

One day the Loft was packing up for a hike. 
Shea packed 37 bags of Hershey's dark 
chocolate, and Jenny brought Algernon, 
saving her from death. Heather B. made 
sure to grab her crochet needles, while Polk 
conveniently forgot her razor. There were 
three stragglers--Emily S, Jocelyn, and 
Janette S, who kept stubbing their toes and 
bumping into trees and boulders. Yet, they 
felt no pain as they read the letters from 
their distant loves. Janette C. and Tiffany 
lead the group with Spanish singing. A 
mighty blizzard hit, and the group became 
trapped in a small cave that some of the 
girls found. Immediately the girls began 
working to solve the problem at hand. 
Danelle and Sarah teamed up to figure out 
how the Loft would get down. Heather B. 
was asked to attend to the more immediate 
problem of keeping everyone warm, but 
before she could start crocheting, Nellie 
and Allison made sure to give her the pink 
string so as to be hip when they got down. 
As the evening dragged on. Shea's supplies 
began to dwindle, and everyone was hun- 
gry. Much to Jenny's horror, Careth real- 
ized her dreams of being a tiger had not 
truly been fulfilled at Kilter and began to 
stalk Algernon. Jane ran away, 'cause she 
likes to run. Katie G. was a pre-med major, 
but she could only diagnose the girl's sick- 
nesses (she hadn't gotten far enough in the 
book to know about cures). Brie fell asleep 
but kept saying, "Kilt, I need my kilt!" 
Deborah clicked her heels and muttered 
"there's no place like home." As you 
would expect, the facilities were not good 
and Kara said, "Oh my lands, I have to pee 
like the dickens." By this time everyone 
was cold except Shea and Polk for obvi- 
ous reasons. To calm everyone, Liz read 
Dr. Seuss. When asked about the dilemma. 
Mindy replied, "I don't want to hear about 
it!" All Elisa could say was, "Wow! I tell 
you what, wow." Jocelyn got ill and vom- 
ited all over Brie's pack so Emily J. pointed 
out that. "Guys, that's not nice." then some- 
one asked, "Hey, where's Christy?" All the 
girls except Shea and Polk died from be- 
ing cold. And, Christy lived but that was 
just because she was on the phone when 
the hall left. So, what is the moral of this 
silly story? Grow your own leg hair or de- 
cide on a freaking T-shirt! 

The Loft loves to go places together. This group really enjoyed their hike 
and the fellowship it brought.

The Warriors of Rivendell have gathered 
this year to become a powerful force on 
campus. These warriors are from many dif- 
ferent backgrounds and civilizations and 
bring many different cultures to the hall. 
There is an Ugandan/Kenyan warrior and 
a South African/Chilean Warrior, an Ecua- 
dorian Warrior, a Japanese Kamakazi/ 
Samurai Warrior and a Portugese Warrior. 
There are also Warriors from Nashville, 
Dalton, Philadelphia, Harrisburg, Pittsburg, 
Chicago, San Francisco, and Syracuse. It 
is a diverse group of warriors that come 
from different places and bond as a unit of 
warriors. The nature of these warriors is a 
mystery, but anyone who challenges them 
understands that they are fully prepared for 
battle and always on the look-out for any- 
thing out of the ordinary. These warriors 
are also musical. They are known to sing 
and play many guitars. If you stop by, they 
will either entertain you or destroy you. 
Just kidding, relax!

Once upon a time in a land far away there was a 
guy named Prince Miscotslor. He spent most of 
his time harmoniously digging in the basement 
of his castle. What he was looking for people were 
not sure, but he was getting older and needed to 
find a princess who enjoyed excavation as much 
as he did. So there went up from the king a decree 
to find out what kind of women were available in 
the land of Covenanter. Turns out not many were 
that interested in the prince, because he seemed 
like kind of a dork. But the king did manage to 
find 24 interesting young ladies who all lived at 
the top of the nicest housing in town, on Halcyon 
Lane. The 6 newest to Covenanter were examined 
first. The king noticed that they were all wearing 
wedding dresses, so he thought that was a good 
sign. But after he saw that they were kleptomani- 
acs with video cameras, he decided against them. 
Next the king turned to the two next door, but 
they were busy banging on the wall trying to get 
the six to be quiet and he went on with his search. 
At the other end of the lane, he discovered two 
sets of 4 young ladies. The first 4 were dressed 
and ready for a sports tournament; the king real- 
ized that they were to busy with sports to consider 
Prince Miscotlor. The other four were nearly en- 
gaged to other young men of Covenanter, and the 
king continued his journey. As he was getting 
ready to leave, he turned a corner and discovered 
another cul-de-sac of Halcyon Lane. "Surely," the 
king mused. "I can find someone here." So he be- 
gan to work the rooms, beginning with the C.I.T. 
room, which had mysteriously turned into the Far 
Eastern exchange student room. They were gone 
to the house, as usual. So, the king went across the 
hall to the Queen's room, where she was baking 
brownies in her fire protectant suit with her cook- 
book in hand and her mom on the phone for in- 
structions. While she talked with the king, her 
roommate noticed that the brownies were burn- 
ing, and once again, a cooking masterpiece from 
the queen. Needing a daughter-in-law with cook- 
ing abilities, he turned to the last room on the 
hall. In this room there were 4 very different young 
ladies. The first was practically perfect in every 
way, and the king nearly picked her, but after dis- 
covering that her bedtime was 8:00 realized that 
his digging son would need more of a night owl. 
The second spent most of her time watching the 
sports of the land, making sure that she kept it 
cool and kept her options open. The king decided 
she was a little to feisty for his son and went to the 
next. The third was busy choosing her clothes for 
the next day and washing the dishes. "Industri- 
ous," thought the king, "but a little much." And 
then, he caught sight of the last. And what a sight 
she was. from her blue toes to her rat. She told the 
king all that her neighbors had taught her at the 
Christmas party, and the king was impressed. "Af- 
ter all my son is tall and this one does enjoy dig- 
ging!" So he chose the big one and they went 
home to live happily ever after.

It was such a pretty day that the girls from Rowan 
decided to have a hall picnic, it was a perfect 
time of year, because the leaves were changing to 
many brilliant shades. 

Joya and Becky are getting ready for Kilter. What 
better famous duo than salt and pepper? From 
their foil caps to their "S" and "P" this was a 
clever idea. 

The 1 999-2000 year for Rowan Hall has been 
filled with laughter from 26 voices. It has been great to 
see how the Lord has worked in each life and has knit us 
together as a hall. Life is full of doors to walk through 
and as K.D. puts it. "It is much harder to walk through a 
closed door than open one!" The hall is full of funny 
times; perhaps it is just watching [Crista fall over in the 
hallway for no particular reason or it is going into K.I. 
and B.C.'s good lime, amusement park room. A new 
semester brings new friends but also brings friends mov- 
ing off the hall. ..or did they as we hear L.R. cry out, 
"Someone's been sleepin' in my bed!" and B.D. think- 
ing aloud "I thought Christina moved out?" There are 
always those phrases that a hall becomes accustomed to 
hearing - "sketchy," 'True that," "sure not," "1/2 friend," 
"The Full Monty," "the Claw," "I'm gonna marry him," 
and "Tim McGraw is the greatest." There are also those 
standard questions: "Debra, don't you have your own 
room?" or " a shower...?" or "Aren't JEEPs the 
best?" (R.G. and B.C. beg to differ?) or "Is that Bebo?" 
or "Does it look like I have chicken pox?" or "Man, I just 
finished my Twizzlers." So many great memories from 
the year. Wondering into rooms you might've heard A.L. 
exclaim, "OK, what's the doily doing on my desk?" or 
B.D. stating the obvious that Marion is sleeping again or 
B.C. asking "Are you two still talking about shaving?" 
Whatever it is, there are always conversations to get in 
on. And so the year ends and what a great year it 

has been. Laugh every so often about the funny 
memories... even if it is the thought of a horse and car- 
riage running a red light! Before we go, though, we 
wanted to wish one person a "happy honeymoon. ..and 
don't forget the pills."

Praise, What kind of name is Felix, PCB-Fall Break '99, 
Alfonzo, "The String Dance," It's Vaden's Day. ..hey 
something's on the roof, On Central.'s always open 
dorms, Hey . . .1 think it's that Big and Small guy, "Lady

argue if you are in the back seat, You boys looking for 
your mammas?, Tiki Bar anyone?, No Chapel... what 
happened?. Hot Chin-chilla, camping on Day of Prayer, 
Pumpkin carving, Pursuit of Holiness... or a fig leaf - 
just ask Carlisle, Anyone seen my glasses?, 2C skits... 
"Feel it!"... "You goin' to Kilter with me!" ... the A- 
Team, "SECOND CENTRAL" on the Covenant Col- 
lege sign, I ain't scared, I'll slap her though, Doo Doo 
Brown, Silver Phoenix, So Dave. ..what's are the ad- 
vantages and disadvantages of moving off campus, RA 
staffs, Watertight with Founders, fire alarms. . .quick grab 
your stuff the buildings on fire, So why can't you eat for 
24 hours?, I don't know how those rats got in your tub, 
the Intriguing One, Joe K. - 1 swear. . .it smells like pump- 
kin. Who broke Caines' nose?, "My mind is telling me 
no...", playing Rage through 3" 1 Central's speakers, 
Dance parties. Glen Falls, G-Dog, "How'd they know it 
was me streaking the Lobby? - Vaden, "Let's get it on," 
And last of all, the guys. You made my time at Covenant 
worth it. You taught me and stretched me. I now know 
the true meaning of friendship. Thanks.

We may call it unity. But it doesn't really 
matter what we call it. With God our Fa- 
ther we stand together. By ourselves we fall 
flat. Together, my sisters, we are God's in- 
credible gift: friendship! Whatever we do 
or whatever we plan- we stand together. 
We share our blessed gifts with our sisters- 
for we are a part of each other. We go out 
of ourselves and not only appreciate what 
is noble and loving in one another, but what 
is also unattractive and hideous. We smash 
the barriers and get next to each other. To-

4th Central's Manifesto 
Some say we're nerds, others comment on 
our purity, while yet others say, "4th Cen- 
tral, where's that?" Do not be deceived, 
Covenant College. 4th Central has surrep- 
titious plans of unveiling our very own 4th 
Central identity. And, by the way, if we're 
talking above you, that's because we are. 
While the rest of the campus is sleeping 
tight in their delusions of safety, 4th Cen- 
tral is plotting an event much greater than 
even Michael Crichton could imagine. We 
hear those remarks you make at us as we 
pass by. But we know it's just fear. That's 
right, deep beneath our studious exteriors 
and innocent facades hide subtle, false and 
treacherous disemblances. Beware of the girl 
that lives on 4th Central for her unseeming 
honesty and her diabolical good looks. 
Femme Fatales, that's us. Just wait, and you 
will witness events that will astonish, amaze 
and frighten you. Unfortunately, you will 
have no evidence to convict us. And as they 
say, nothing comes of nothing.

"Oh, the comfort, the inexpressible com- 
fort of feeling safe with a person having 
neither to weigh thoughts nor measure 
words, but to pour them out. Just as they 
are— chaff and grain together, knowing that 
a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep 
what is worth keeping, and then with the 
breath of kindness, blow the rest away." 
--George Eliot 

"Love is a great thing, a great good in ev- 
ery way, it alone lightens what is heavy, 
and leads smoothly over all roughness, for 
it carries a burden without being burdened, 
and makes every bitter thing sweet and 
tasty. Love wants to be lifted up, not held 
back by anything low... Nothing is sweeter 
than love, nothing higher, nothing fuller, 
nothing better in heaven and earth... Love 
keeps watch and is never unaware, even 
when it sleeps, tired, it is never exhausted; 
hindered it is never defeated, alarmed it is 
never afraid, but like a living flame and a 
burning torch it bursts upward and blares 
forth." -Thomas A. Kemps

Building Wisdom 

"For of Him and through Him and to Him are all 
things, to whom be glory forever. Amen." 

Romans 11:36 

"The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowl- 
edge, But fools despise wisdom and instruction." 



Proverbs 1:7 

These texts of Scripture are part of the basis for 
Covenant's college motto: "In all things... Chist Pre- 
eminent." We acknowledge all things as being created 
by God, as being held together by Him, and as being 
ultimately for His glory; it is the fool that does not begin 
his quest for wisdom and knowlege with the fear of the 
Lord. It is only on this foundation that we can be truly 
building wisdom. 

Joy Vincent and Kat Barnes work

gives friends an excuse to get to-

Dr. Dan MacDougall

Diverse Science 

The science department 
has always offered a wide vari- 
ety of subjects for those students 
interested in learning more about 
the natural world. 
From Chemistry 
to Physics, as 
well as Biology 
which includes 
Pre-Medical and 
science, one can 
see there is quite 
a palette to 
choose from. One of the great 
aspects of studying the sciences 
is the opportunity to work hands- 
on in one's particular field of 
study right here at Covenant.

that is needed 
when applying 
for a job, or on 
those tough

applications. Just 
about any science major you 
ask will tell you that it is not an 
easy path to take, but the wealth 
of learning that they get here at

"Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great 
cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that 
hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us 
run with perseverance the race marked out for us." 

Hebrews 12:1 (NIV) 

The biblically Reformed faith affirms the goodness of the 
human body as God created it. For this reason, the 
athlete serves just as an important role in the building of 
Christ's kingdom as the musician or the chemist or the 
writer. We are to be stewards of all of creation, 
including the bodies that God has given us. 

Not only are our athletes helping to expand Christ's 
kingdom into all areas of life, but they also serve as a 
picture for all of us of the perseverance that we are to 
be building through the whole Christian life.

Mike, one of the five freshmen in the starting

if I Goals Accomplished 

Despite a 9-8- 1 record, 
this season was a tremendous 
success. From the first early 
morning of camp through the 
last practices in mid November, 
we were really a team, focus- 
ing on unity, respect, and 
sportsmanship. The sheer emo- 
tion of playing a sport competi- 
tively is sometimes overwhelm- 
ing. It can make you crazy. It 
can make you violent. It makes 
you vulnerable and susceptible 
to temptation. It makes you fail. 
It makes you learn. It makes 
you grow. 

This season can be con- 
sidered a sucess due to the fact 
that great strides were made 
toward maturation both on and 

off the field. The team did an 
exceptional job of carrying it- 
self on and off the field by re- 
specting the refs, the opposing 
teams, other coaches, home and 
away fans, and the game of soc- 
cer itself. It was an honor to be 
a part of this team and we are 
thankful to have had the chance 
to come through this program. 
To God be the glory.

A Rebuilding Season 

The overall record of 
the team reflected little of the 
actual work that went into 
this fall season. Facing an- 
other season of rebuilding, 
the Lady Scots brought in 
ten new freshmen and assis- 
tant coach Warren Smith 
(formally known as Wa J). 
Key areas of focus this fall 
included building an offen- 
sive attack with young play- 
ers, gearing up a new fresh- 
man goalkeeper, and chang- 
ing the entire defensive style 
of play. Additionally, this 
season was one of the 
toughest seasons faced by 
the team as the Lady Scots 
played teams that were all 

ranked in the top 25 of the na- 
tion and/or conference oppo- 

The motivations of 
every person that came to 
the team were totally differ- 
ent. But ultimately, this sea- 
son required an attitude of 
"go hard, play hard, work 
hard, enjoy what God has 
put before you, and leave the 
results to the Lord!" Hope- 
fully, in the future, hard 
work, perseverance, and the 
drive to play well and to His 
glory will continue to pay

The 1999 season could be de-

this year. The first was prob- 
ably the race at UAH. It was a 
fairly large race with several 
good teams, as well as the first

but even so, as they called out 
the places for the men's teams,

Learning Perseverance 

If there is one word to describe 
the whole volleyball season, it 
would be perseverance. There 
were numerous obstacles that 
the Lady Scots had to overcome 
this season. Altogether there 
were eight newcomers to the 
team, six of those being fresh- 
men. The team had to work 
extra hard to build the neces- 
sary chemistry that it takes to 
win games. There was also a 
brand new head coach which 
always can take a little time 
getting used to. In addition to 
these trials, the girls struggled 
to remain healthy throughout 
the season; there were numer- 
ous injuries and illnesses that 
seemed to travel through the 

team members. Lots of dili- 
gence, discipline, and dedica- 
tion was needed to get through 
some tough times. Despite all 
the various points that seemed 
to be set against them, the Lady 
Scots Covenant Volleyball 
team did better than they have 
done in 15 years! The girls 
ended at a great stance in the 
TV AC Conference and made 
it to Regionals showing their 
strength in what should have 
been a time of weakness.

in addition to several one-time

The main attraction sec- 
ond semester was basketball. 
Both men and women packed 

the gym every night, eager to try

there were so many teams signed 
up for the sport, each team was 
allowed to choose whether they 
wanted to play in the competive 
"A" league or the just-for-fun 
"B" league. Those in the "A" 
league were more serious, and 
most of the teams were hand- 
picked by the captains. The "B" 
league was mostly comprised of 
hall teams. 

All in all, no matter what 
sport was being played, 
intramurals were a source of fun 
and stress-relief for most of the 
Covenant College Campus.

Covenanter Heather 
Rantal summed up the feelings 
of many when she stated that 
she was proud of the players 
for a season well-played. "I

games but the ones I did get to 
were worth it. There was lots 
of energy in the room and I re- 
ally appreciated the sportsman- 
ship that was displayed." The 
biggest problem facing the 
Scots is not a lack of effort or 
talent. Rather, it is a lack of ex- 
perience. Having three fresh- 
men starters and no seniors on 
the team has led to some frus- 
trating losses that will hopefully 
translate into wins as the young 

Scots continue to gain experi-

based on the camaraderie and

A Note from the President 

Congratulations to the class of 2000, the first 
class for the new millennium. When we look 
back and see all of the changes that have 
occurred in the last 100 years, even the most 
imaginative have a hard time thinking that the 
next century could bring even more change. 

You will live during most of this new century. 
Some believe that medical advances may even 
enable some of you to see the year 2100. My 
prayer is that Covenant will have prepared you 
well for this century. Doubtless the world will 
look very different, but I am convinced that 
there will be an even greater need than there is 
today for men and women who have their 
identity in Christ, who look at the world 
through the lens of the Bible, and who want to 
serve others and have the ability to think in 
this way. If the self-centered hedonism of 
today continues, the people who live coram 
deo will be ever more important. 

Thank you for what you have contributed 
while you were at Covenant College. We pray 
God's blessings upon you and hope that you'll 
come to share with us what God is doing 
through you and how we can improve what we 
did to serve future generations of students. 
Keep us in your prayers. 

In Christ, 

Frank A. Brock

Q&'ism Me^Stfs** 

It's hard to believe it, but the long-awaited day is finally 
here - the 2000 Tartan is complete! This day brings to an 
end over a year of regular staff meetings, hard work, late nights, 
laughter, a few tears, some not so appropriate words, and most 
importantly lots of fun. But, it does not bring to an end all the 
friendships that have been formed and strengthened or the 
memories that have been made. Those things will never be 

To our staff, you have all been wonderful. From the first 
staff meeting, your dedication, energy, creativity, ready laugh- 
ter, and good (well, most of the time) attitudes have never 
ceased to amaze us. Thank you for faithfully showing up for 
meetings and being ready and willing to work. Thank you 
for a job well done and something of which we can all be 
proud. We couldn't have done it without you! 

To the friendly Bagpipe people, we're glad that you 
stopped by to distract us and to keep us company on late 
nights in the publications' offices. Thanks for all the fun talks 
and music wars. Great job on the newspaper! 

Mike, thank you for nights out to eat, for making all the 
phone calls that we didn't want to make, for taking care of 
our hate mail, and for meticulously proofreading everything. 
We really appreciate all of your help, and we also appreciate 

you letting us take ownership of our book and do things for ourselves. 

To the Covenant community, we hope that you enjoy this year's 

book. We have worked long and hard, and we have tried to well represent 

all that happened during the 1 999-2000 school year. Thank you for help- 
ing us out by submitting pictures and writing stories. 

Finally, we could not have done any of this if we were not truly 

built on the cornerstone, Jesus Christ. He is our strength and salvation. 

We sincerely hope that we have represented Covenant College's motto, 

"In all thing, Christ pre-eminent," in all that we have done this past year 

and in every page of the yearbook that we produced. To God be the glory !

The 2000 Tartan (volume 43) was published by Walsworth Publishing 
Company, located in Marceline, Missouri and represented by Bill Stoess. 
The book has 216 pages (17 in color), and all pages use AWPC body 
and display fonts. All scripture references (ads excepted) are taken with 
permission from the Holy Bible, New King James Version. The entire 
book was laid out in Adobe Pagemaker 6.5 on Dell Dimension XPS

Based on I Peter 2:4-10, the theme "Building on the Cornerstone" was 
originally suggested by Janine Tuininga. Emily would like to thank 
Nathan Brauer. Student Senate Vice President, for graciously listening 
to her whine every day at work. Thanks to Autumn Fredericks and the 
rest of Student Senate for their generous support of the 2000 Tartan.

these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. For he 
who lacks these things is short sighted, even to blindness, and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins. Therefore, 
brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for if you do these things you will never stumble, for so an 
entrance will be supplied to you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel 
of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in 
the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the 
Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night. He 
is like a tree planted by streams 
of water which yields its fruit 
in season and whose leaf does 
not wither. Whatever he does 
i prospers. 
; Psalm 1:1-3 

Congratulations Joe! 

We are so thankful that God has 

worked mightily in your life and 

pray that He will guide and bless 

your future.

"Then drink," said the Lion.

The Lion answered this only by a look and a 

very low growl... 

"I daren't come and drink," said Jill.

"Oh dear!" said Jill, coming another step 

nearer. "I suppose I must go and look for
